HTC EVO on Sprint.com now.

Sprint has them in stock again on the website. I just ordered mine. Thay have been out of stock for a while now. Just a heads up if you're looking for one.
I checked the local corporate store and they were still out of stock and not expecting any soon.

Sweet jeebus! I just got on there to see how much it would cost to move from ATT to them. For two Evo's, family plan, 4G service and insurance on both phones is $900 one time charge and $164/month. Granted, $200 of that one time charge is mail in rebates but fuck that!

For refrence I went to Verizons site and two Droid X's is $400 one time and $195/month for roughly the same thing without the 4g of course.

Almost $1k is hard to swallow to start service. I dont even want to think how much this will all cost me when my kids get old enough for phones.


**EDIT** Decided to check sprints site out again because that $900 didnt sound right. Come to find out I double clicked a phone so it isnt $900, its $600 and $200 of that is mail in rebate.

and in 1 year it's cheaper than verizon. I've been rocking my Evo now for going on 2 months and it's been a great phone. Exactly what I've been waiting for.

dont get verizon .. over played and over paid .. the droid x in my opinion is not as good as the EVO .. ive had the iphone and the evo and many other droid phones.. i just go sign up with someone and try a phone for 30 days then cancel before the 30days so i can get a review of the phone .. but i like the EVO most and i have been using it since right after it came out ..

How is your battery life and what kind of usage do you give it?

At work around 5pm, my low battery warning kicks on. It will make it home and when I take a show I plug it in.

What I can't stand (this goes for all phones) is when the battery gets low. The phone turns on the screen, and every freaking 5% it turns it on again. Why drain the battery anymore just freaking beep at me.

OK let me ask again since no one responded in the other thread. What is so great about the Epic? Specs wise, the Evo is better at everything except for the physical keyboard so I dont understand why its so great. Can you elaborate on the two?

Occasional daily browsing will get you through the day. My suggestion is to buy the $10 eBay charger with 2 batteries, then it doesn't matter.

The only real thing I've ever read was that the screen/display was better for gaming.

Also, the Evo has a 30fps cap on the display so it doesn't feel as smooth when navigating/scrolling. I have a feeling this will be fixed in a future update though.

one thing that will make a difference for your average user... the processor in the phone is alot more efficient, hence battery life will be better. I can't remember the exact specs on the processor atm.
